Ukrainian Armed Forces launched a strike targeting Russian troops gathered in occupied Olenivka in Donetsk Oblast, the General Staff reported on Feb.29.

The strike reportedly killed 19 Russian soldiers, including the deputy commander of a military unit. Twelve soldiers, including the commander of that unit, were reportedly injured.

Ukraine conducted the strike using a multiple rocket launcher, according to the General Staff.

Ukraine's military intelligence agency confirmed the successful strike on Russian troops in Olenivka.

Andrii Yusov, a military intelligence spokesperson, told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty that "similar operations would be conducted in the future."
